I was just wondering how everone feels about our government's dragging it's feet over coming to some decision that would avoid us going over the "fiscal cliff". It has been reported that if they do not come to an agreement that the average American would see a tax increase of approx. $3,500 annually. It is sad that many politicians feel that protecting the wealthiest Americans is a priority. I know I cannot absorb that type of tax increase and I am better off than many americans.
